[applause] >> good evening. good evening. on behalf of the millions of mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and friends, republicans and democrats who counted on planned parenthood for health care and in honor of the thousands and doctors of the staff of planned parenthood all across america, i am proud tonight to support the reelection of president barack obama. [applause] two years ago, when paul ryan took over theeohner house of representatives, they promised they would create jobs. instead, on day one, they came after women's health and they have not let up since. first, they voted to end cancer screenings for 5 million women. they voted to end funding for birth control with planned parenthood, and, for good measure, they even tried to redef

. this afternoon president obama arrived in charlotte right in time for a star studded night. the marquee speaker tonight, former president bill clinton. the crowd will also hear from elizabeth warren running for the senate in massachusetts. the speakers have been passionate at this convention. throwing punch after punch at republicans and aggressively affirming the strength of the president's record. and it's been great to see. they talked about the auto bailout. >> the american auto industry is not just surviving. it's thriving. where mitt romney was willing to turn his back on akron, dayton, and toledo, ohio, the president said i've got your back. >> the president's record on women's issues. >> being a mother is no longer a liability. and being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition. now, that's what change looks like. >> and we've heard the most sustained defense of the obama health care law and what it means to this country. >> this is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single american in every corner of this country after 90 years of trying. >
numbers showing president obama ahead by eight points in iowa and four points in florida. while the swing state map is what everybody is watching the swing states are the most important to keep an eye on because that's where you wrap up the votes that allow you to win the election, there's new national polling now for what it's worth. there's new polling every day. the republican leaning poll is out with their new national numbers today. their national tracking poll putting president obama up by one point nationally. the gallup tracking poll putting president obama up by three points today nationally. that's in big picture perspective of what's going on in the presidential race. for an even bigger picture perspective on those national numbers, i should point out to you that of the last 20 national presidential polls, of the 20 national polls taken in the month of september, every single one of those it 20 polls shows president obama winning nationally. the range varies from one point up to eight points in some other polls. but 20 straight national polls showing president obama ahead. that
, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g
-- immigration reform, and for those of us that followed that, barack obama voted for poison-pill amendments the coalition did not support, that john mccain/kennedy did not support, yet when it came to the election, john mccain did horrible with latino voters and felt abandoned by the group he felt he had been fighting for, and probably one of the most negative eds their opinion 2008 was a spanish language and then try to link john mccain to the use of rush limbaugh, not even fairly taken -- taking the views of rush limbaugh into context, and he hates the john mccain, but he abandoned immigration reform after the election, and frankly, just talking about the principles, how could you blame him? >> i would say his party abandoned him. we saw in the primaries leading up to the nomination, you had rudy guiliani trying to outdo each other in terms of extreme rhetoric that was anti-locking all. it was a weight that he could not overcome as he was headed into the nomination and he realized he could not fulfil the positions he had taken early on and had no choice. i think this is a reflection of th
think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t
-americans, and young people. first lady michelle obama will be front and center tonight. and as will san antonio mayor castro. who gives the big keynote address, democrats are proud of that your policies. and what they believe in will be demonstrated on stage. last week, republicans tried to hide what they were really about. just look at this. 55 prime time speeches, not a single one, not one, included the words tea party. all those unpopular extreme republicans, gop decided to keep them out of the public eye. guess that tea was little too strong for swing voters around the country. let's remember the most conservative platform in history. you know, that one that didn't represent their nominee. >> this is the platform of the republican part. it is not the platform of mitt romney. >> yeah. he's just the head of the party. but this week is different. forget the caricature of the president and his policies. at his convention, democrats will set the record straight. >> they spend a lot of time talking about me but didn't spend a lot of time talking about you. basically they said first of all, everything i
is changed. a senior campaign official now confirms to fox news that president obama personally got involved to make all this happen. john roberts begins our coverage tonight live at the dnc. john, what a day. >> what a day it was. this is the most news we have seen at a political convention. democrats were facing withering criticism from jewish groups about the change in language from 2008. one jewish group is taking out a full paged a in tomorrow's local paper. they obviously say that they are happy that the language for jerusalem is back in. they are still worried though about that lackluster vote and the fact that other language regarding hamas and israel being america's strongest ally in the region is still out of the platform. no explanation as to why jerusalem was taken out in the first place though we do understand there was consternation from arab americans in the michigan delegates about that language going back. in the same thing happened to them on god as well. taking out the word god from the 2008 platform even though only used as adjective talking about people's god-given. blac
, president obama recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel and our party's platform should as well. mr. chairman, i have submitted my amendment in writing and i believe it is being projected on the screen for the delegates to see. i move adoption of the amendment as submitted and shown to the delegates. >> a motion has been made. is there a second? is there any further discussion? hearing none, the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those in favor? all those opposed? in the opinion -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor, say aye. all those opposed, say no. i will do that one more time. all those delegates in favor say aye. all those opposed, say no. in the opinion of that chair, two-thirds of the vote is in the affirmative. the platform has been amended as shown on the screen. thank you very much. gov strickland, thank you for your service. thank you again for your service. as chair of the platform drafting committee. everyone, please rise for the invocation offered by bishop vashti murphy mckenzie. >> this would be the time you would take the h

, is the paradox here that john kasich the republican governor is helping president obama win reelection? >> you know, paul i think i don't accept that. fact of the matter it's hard to defeat an incumbent president. two, ohio has always been a swing state and number three, in order for mitt romney to do better he has to be here more. the situation is we are doing better here. we went from 89 cents rainy day fund to loss of 400,000 jobs to up 123, so people are feeling better here, but we have the wind in our face. you know the uncertainty of threatened tax increases and big debt hanging over our head. if i want the wind at my back, mitt romney has to be elected president because the uncertainty is paralyzing businesses. >> paul: but should mitt romney associate himself with policies of successful republican governors with lower unemployment than the national average. i haven't her him do that. >> siechb him do it. i've been with him a number of times -- he can the policies we have pursued out here is not much different than what i saw ronald reagan do. we balanced the budget. we reduced taxes an

to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things
started. we'll look at what's ahead from the convention floor, plus president obama, rates himself on his handling of our economy. and the republicans respond. >> you've had 3 1/2 years to fix it, what grade would you give yourself so far? >> you know, i would say incomplete. >> shep: the white house says president obama just needs more time. republicans say time is up. >> this out of control deficit, this spiraling debt is not only a threat to our economy today, it is bankrupting the next generation. >> shep: tonight grading the president's performance on a defining issue in this election. and a look at julian castro. the young american mayor who is delivering the keynote address from his mother's influence. >> she gave me a sense that public service could be noble. >> to what supporters say about his similarities to the president. >> i'm very flattered by the comparisons. >> shep: how he's set to make history tonight. plus, michelle obama scheduled to take the stage to talk up her husband. but there is one thing you should absolutely not expect to hear her say. and how her speech could

more are those points compelling for middle class voters, obama hasn't done enough for you. i can do much more. which seems to be what the swing voters are really, really looking for. >> i think it's a step in the right direction. he has to get a little more aggressive, detailing the problem and saying here is how i'm going to get the burden of government off of business, and here is how we're going to grow jobs. i think he needs to go maybe beyond the ten seconds in the commercial so say, here is how lower taxes and lower regulations will create more hiring. >> well, you can't do that on a 30 second spot. >> that's right, drop the trade stuff and give him two more sentences in. >> if he does, he he will have an opportunity in the debates and press conferences and town hauls, he could do it. >> give speeches, why does not give a series of set 30 minute speeches on the obama record, on the economy, what his proposals would do on all of the specific issues? why doesn't egg deeper than that campaign has been willing to go so far as he obviously did not do in the acceptance speech. i don
of president obama and the values that guide him. >> he believes that when you have worked hard and done well and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. no, you reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed. so when people ask me whether being in the white house has changed my husband, i can honestly say that when it comes to his character and his convictions and his heart, barack obama is still the same man i fell in love with all of those years ago. yeah. he's the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs and instead, working in struggling neighborhoods where a steel plant had shutdown fighting to rebuild those communities and get folks back to work. because for barack, success is not about how much money you make, it is about the difference you make in people's lives. >> all right. that was michelle obama last night and we were watching it together and one of the things we were joking about is that she raised the bar when it came to the guns, right? we all -- and we are all going sleeveless now a

criticized for is not having a narrative. not telling us what's and obama presidency would be like. i do not think we have any link here between the circumstances, what he has done, and what he will do. that picture is not there. >> to be fair, i feel like we got a little more from barack obama that we get from mitt romney on what the next four years will look like but i do not have a good understanding. >> i am not sure mitt romney knows what he wants to do and if he does, i do not think he wants to say much because that is his nature. he does not want to be held with his feet to the fire. i was old disconcerted about the things that obama was promising. i did not understand how he was going to get there. 1 million manufacturing jobs. he is throwing out these things that we still have not seen any jobs and we're getting more numbers tomorrow. how is he going to do things that he is not doing for four years? where are these jobs coming from? >> it is a good point. i was thinking that when he was going through a laundry list trade will have energy expansion and manufacturing jobs, we will
video where romney said, 47% of americans saw themselves as victims. today the obama campaign released a devastating new ad that simply let's romney speak for himself while showing the faces of the 47%. >> there are 47% of the people that will vote for the president no matter what, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled. they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> seniors, veterans, the working poor, that's the half of america that romney is writing off. it's offensive. it's an offensive world view and on the campaign trail in virginia, president obama seemed offended by it. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims, who never take responsibility for their own lives. i know. i travel around a lot in virginia and across this country. i don't meet a lot of victims. i see hardworking virginians, i see students trying to work their way through college. i see single moms like my mom putting in overtime to raise the
